MCVA promotes inclusion, participation and friendship to people who are lonely and isolated, both in residential aged care facilities and individuals still living in their own homes.
People experience isolation and loneliness for many reasons including poor mobility, disability, illness, limited contact with family and friends, mental health issues and cultural barriers. MCVA attempts to enhance the lives of people identified to be socially isolated.
Eligible clients aged over 65 years of age, need to be registered with My Aged Care. This can be done by telephoning 1800 200 422. Staff from My Aged Care will then explain the process and how services from MCVA can be sourced. Once all documentation is in order, the Co-ordinator will visit with the individual to provide them with information about our transport service and our visiting program. Visiting can include just staying in and having a cuppa and a chat or accompanying clients shopping, morning tea, library or various other activities.
NDIS participants, seeking service can contact the organisation directly, or have their representative or Support Co-ordinator do this.
All MCVA staff and volunteers are criminal history and referenced checked.
